UNStudioâ€™s design has been selected as the winning entry in the competition for the remodelling of the Hanwha Headquarters building in Seoul. The renovation of the office tower incorporates the remodelling of the facade, the interior of the common spaces, lobbies, meeting levels, auditorium and executive areas, along with the redesign of the landscaping.
The project is an interior renovation of an existing building and seeks to establish a coherent whole operation by adapting the program to the needs and uses of new users. The intervention is essentially a reorganization of interior spaces, limiting interventions on buildings and ensuring optimization of quality and comfort of use. The general principles of circulation of the old building are maintained and adapted to the standards required by the change of destination.
The choice of colours for the faĂ§ade, and the folding of the faĂ§ade planes are inspired by the canyons in the Israeli deserts while the faĂ§ade lighting aims to carry the narratives of nature. The animation and vibrancy of the colours used are meant to mirror the dynamism of the sky. Moving colours and projected patterns add a dimensionality to the faceting that is further enhanced as the darker panels recede themselves when the colours fall onto the light, beige walls.

It is a building consisting of two distinct adjacent and interrelated volumes, the housing itself – consisting of two stories plus a penthouse â€“ and a garage.
Although the volume, apparently, is being treated as a solid monolith, it is fully traversed, with vertical and horizontal voids, with the purpose of creating strong visual relations with its contiguous exterior spaces, and allowing the light to enter through the entire house.
